Should Arsenal go all out to sign Pedro Neto? Whatever the cost?

If there’s one thing Arsenal fans shouldn’t be concerned about, it’s Manchester United beating them to Pedro Neto’s signing. Pedro Neto is a top talent who will most likely be on the move this summer with Arsenal touted as a likely destination.

The Portuguese prodigy continues to impress in the Premier League, with nine assists and two goals in 17 appearances. Teams are eager to sign him for next season with a desire to capitalise on his explosive pace, remarkable technical ability and talent, and knack for creating opportunities.

Arsenal is one of the sides interested in adding the 23-year-old to their squad. Dean Jones recently revealed that they, the Gunners, were confident he would thrive at the Emirates.

According to Ben Jacobs, only Tottenham and Wolves’ high asking prices could pose a problem for the Gunners in their pursuit of Neto. The PL pundit cited those two issues while dismissing the idea that Manchester United could beat Arsenal to the winger’s signature.

Jacobs told Give Me Sport, “I think that Arsenal and Spurs are more likely destinations for Neto, at this point. We know the Tottenham interest is historical, and I would expect Arsenal to consider Neto this summer as one of a few targets in that position.

“But both of the north London clubs will also be well aware that Wolves – because he is still well contracted – will be looking for a club-record sale.

“They will be very firm on price. You can understand why, in an inflated market, where many attackers and midfielders have gone for in excess of £70million.”

This news comes at an ideal time for Gooners. It appears to be a season of good fortune for them, considering the team’s current form.
It may be a North London battle for Neto, but Arsenal’s recent rise (to challenging for the league) should appeal to the Portuguese international, shouldn’t it?

  1. No. Everyone conveniently ignores the fact that 3 goals in his last 48 EPL games is an atrocious stat for a player in an attacking role. Many clubs wouldn’t even sign a midfielder with a goal scoring record like that.

  2. I think nelson is a absolutely fine backup for saka. Doesn’t cost a penny. Would make it into most mid to low table teams.

    We have more pressing areas like a CDM a LB who can defend and a striker who can score

  3. Fans tend to forget that Jesus is a natural right winger who can slot in for Saka with ease, as can Nelson, Trossard and Martinelli who would probably be more effective on the right than the left where his crossing let’s him down..Significantly the excellent assist he made for Havertz against Newcastle came as a result of him crossing from the right after a diagonal run when he escaped from his marker.We simply do not need the injury prone Neto fine player that he is.Central midfield remains our priority with Partey almost certain to leave at the end of the season.

    1. Agree with you about Jesus being a natural RW played as a striker. I would rather bring in a striker that excels at finishing, and Jesus can rotate as a backup striker and RW to rest Saka.

      Neto would be waste of funds, very expensive backup who will never unseat Saka, nor deliver significant goals.

      Better to spend wisely and efficiently, get more value for the money; one transfer (striker) solves 2 problems (striker who finishes, and Jesus as backup RW)

  4. Neto is very talented but injury prone. Anything above £50M and the club should look at other options. I like the little I have seen of Nico Williams who can play on both wings as he is adept with both feet, good dribbling ability and is pacey too. He is still raw but would be a good understudy for Saka whilst he continues to develop.

    Unfortunately I don’t think Nelsen will make it despite showing shoots of promise here and there.

  5. I like PNeto but just before I say Yes. Can we look into our academy first?
    BSaka, Nkethiah and ESR all started from Arsenal academy.
